Spring in the Mad River Valley is a sigh of relief after harsh winter months. It’s a season of change — more dramatic than most seasons.
Light is the first sign. More of it, staying around longer each day. Moderating temperatures and sunshine usher in the warm soft bumps of spring skiing. Skiers and riders enjoy being outdoors on the slopes and aprés.
Warm days and cold nights start the sap flowing and the maple sugaring season gets underway.
As the snow melts, the rivers swell. Kayaks and canoes come out of storage and the annual Sugarbush Adventure Games signal the transition to warm weather activities.
Many people who enjoy visiting the Mad River Valley in other seasons miss the natural wonders of spring in Vermont.
